Town of Hickory Tavern

The Hickory Tavern Community is located on Highway 76, a few miles north and west of the City of Laurens. The community, originally known as New Market, is believed to have been named for a tavern operated by Henry Burrows in 1800. The tavern was located in a grove of hickory trees. Today, Hickory Tavern is a thriving community with several businesses, churches, and a school located there. Hickory Tavern is a center of growth for northern Laurens County as newcomers and residents of the more populous counties to the north relocate to that area.
